We could always use a little more punch up front, but, I still see a glaring need for somebody who can QB the man advantage. Suter has a great all around skillset, but, he isn't really the QB we need. Ellis is a huge question mark for that role. Maybe Josi or Blum can fill the need. The team is o.k. but not stellar at 5on5 scoring ... at least above the league midpoint. The PP is the gaping wound. Fix it, or at least get it to average, and this is a dangerous team.
More than likely another 50 pt guy isn't going to help the PP. Very few 50 pt guys are PP specialists up front. I hope Ellis is part of the answer on the PP. He seems to have that skill set. Whether or not it translates is anybodies guess.
I'm not concerned with sexy as much as I am with wins and losses and getting further in the playoffs. If it means we're boring but we win, then so be it. I happen to like the type of game we play. We're pretty much in every game we play and that can't be said about a lot of teams.
